5 Of The Best Time-Out Methods For Your Toddler

Sharing is caring!


3. Time-Outs For Every Age

Your child is never too young (or old!) for time-outs! You’ve probably heard the best method to use it so give your child 1 minute of time-out for every year of their age. So 2-year olds get 2 minutes, 4-year olds get 4 minutes and so on. This is a simple way to take your child’s age and mental capacity into consideration when handing out discipline. If you feel it would be helpful, you can keep a timer where your child can see it so they see how long they have to experience time-out.
